For Tracy's meme in Brisbane

.
Are our streets really "paved with gold"?

Jerusalem's Old City by night is full of shadows.
Here the striations (grooves) in the 3rd century Roman pavement make nice shadows.
.
In a previous post you can see more of these paving stones and read how they came to be incorporated in today's Via Dolorosa.
.
For Tracy's meme, Shadow Shot Sunday.
Tracy lives in Brisbane. Please pay her a visit or contribute a shadow to brighten her day.
She suggests contributing to the Queensland flood relief appeal.
.
God bless Australia in this difficult time!

this is amazing - to think of how old they are, the people who have walked over them & the places they were going. this is the kind of tiny details that makes history interesting!
